Watch his hands above his head as he rocks back and begins to turn...
From his first start of the season on April 9:
When throwing the fastball, Daisuke pulls the ball out of the glove. In the same at bat, he finishes Iwamura with the changeup. Watch the hands.
From Friday night:
Fastball to Brantley.
Curveball to Shoppach.
Now, admittedly, I pulled a few of the more obvious instances. But it looks fairly obvious, because of how far he pulls the ball out when throwing the fastball as he turns, that the batter can most likely pick that up pretty easily.

Three stills of the changeup, curveball and fastball. This could help explain some of his troubles out of the windup and why he's better with runers on. I will try to compare to '07 and '08 videos when I get time later.
